MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – MAUI ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I love my wedding clients and I will go anywhere and do anything to make the most beautiful artwork I can for them!  Kalli and Bridger don’t get to spend too much time together right now while Bridger is back East for his Navy duties, so the best time for us to shoot their engagement session was during their family vacation to Maui!  Of course we made it happen!  This is exactly why I include worldwide travel in my most popular wedding collection, so that we can go someplace special and make something special.  There’s more coming from this Maui engagement session soon, but for now enjoy this sneak peek inside of the beautiful Ka’anapali Beach Club.

I am Montana wedding photographer Paul Bellinger and I photographer weddings of all shapes and sizes, from the beaches to the mountaintops and every wedding destination in between.  It would be my honor to photograph your wedding.  www.paulbellinger.com

BILLINGS MONTANA SENIOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER – KATIE BLACK BACKGROUND SERIES

The hits just keep coming from Katie’s fashion shoot for Marcasa Clothing with hair and makeup from Sydney Ross.  You’ve seen the white background shots, but here’s the first series on the black background, in each of the three looks Katie wore for Marcasa.  I love the look of the black background, it’s so much more serious and sultry than white.  But of course, Katie makes any photo, any wardrobe, and any hair and makeup look good.
Tips for photographers: These three senior portraits were all lit with window light to the camera right and one 4x8’ white reflector to the camera left.  I love the catch lights in her eyes created by the window light and the overall soft light from these two large light sources.  Having a nice window light like this in the studio enables us to get multiple looks from one outfit very quickly.  In this case we shot the white background with studio lights then the black background with natural light for each outfit.  Studio portraits are getting kind of rare these days for senior photos, but they certainly add a nice fashion look that fashion forward seniors love.

Senior portrait photographer Paul Bellinger specializes in modern, stylish portraits that will make any senior feel like a fashion model for day.  Experience professional hair and makeup, professional styling, and two hours with Paul in the studio and at any badass location you’d like in Montana.  Seniors from all over Montana come to Paul Bellinger Photography in Billings Montana for a unique fashion look that is not available anywhere else in Montana.  www.seniors.paulbellinger.com

MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – SAM AND RYAN’S INTIMATE RED LODGE WEDDING

Congratulations to Sam and Ryan!  It was my honor to photograph their intimate wedding at their family cabin on Rock Creek outside of Red Lodge Montana.  It was a stunning Montana setting in the woods right next to the churning white water of Rock Creek.  Here’s a quick peak at a few of my favorites.  The first look was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever witnessed as a photographer and of course I love when the father of the bride gives his little girl one last big hug.  Stay tuned for more to come from this beautiful Montana wedding soon!

MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – PILOT PEAK SPECTACULAR!

I am a Montana wedding photographer but part of my job is to scout epic locations to take my clients for wedding portraits, engagement sessions, honeymoon sessions, etc.  So I am constantly exploring my new home in Montana to find awesome locations.  Well this is one of them!  Pilot Peak is technically in Wyoming, but it’s hard to tell what state you’re in around this area, as the Beartooth/Absaroka wilderness follows the Montana/Wyoming border.  This spot is about 2 hours from Billings Montana and is only about 30 minutes from the top of the Beartooth Pass outside of Red Lodge Montana.  There is a little lake nestled in the woods below and I can’t wait to take a wedding client down there for an epic session!  Who wants to go?

MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – CONGRATS JENNA AND MIKE!

Congrats to Jenna and Mike!  They had a beautiful wedding at the Moss Mansion in downtown Billings Montana last weekend and this was one of my favorite photos from inside the historic mansion.  I love the way a freshly married bride and groom look at each other after the wedding ceremony when their emotions are overflowing.  Even the toughest of guys like Mike can’t keep their emotions under wraps.  Right after the ceremony is always my favorite part of a wedding day and I’m glad the Paul Bellinger Photography team was able to pull of this beautiful image during this brief moment.  There will be more to come from this awesome wedding on the blog soon!  Until then, congrats and thank you Jenna and Mike!

MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – ENGAGEMENT ADVENTURES

Montana is a beautiful wedding destination that attracts couples from all around the country.  I feel so lucky to live here with my amazing wife and work in a profession that enables us to explore this beautiful area.  All of these photos are from a recent engagement session adventure to Tofino, British Columbia.  Naturally, my wife and I took the scenic route, exploring Idaho, Washington, the Palouse, the Olympic Peninsula, Pacific Rim National Park Canada, Sea to Sky Highway Canada, Banff National Park Canada, Glacier National Park USA, and we drove up and down Western Montana on two different routes.  We saw bears, bald and golden eagles, elk, mountain goats, a coyote, a fox and birds galore.  We spent some time with our awesome clients, Jenny and Daniel, who took us to some beautiful beaches, canoeing to a tiny lake island, and to two amazing seafood restaurants (and an equally impressive food truck that serves poutine).  I can’t wait for the wedding adventure we’ll have in Big Sky Montana this summer.  We made some beautiful engagement photos right on the Pacific Ocean.  It was a dream week with my wife, who had never been West of Bozeman Montana, had never seen the Pacific Ocean and had never been to Idaho, Washington, or Canada.  I’m so lucky to have a partner like her to explore with!  She’s also the navigator and she watches to make sure bears and mountain lions don’t sneak up behind me while I’m making photos!  So here’s a few photos I’m grateful to have made with her.
We found these snowy foggy trees and pristine pond in Kootenay National Park Canada.  We stopped to read a sign about a mother grizzly and two cubs that were in the area, and that we found soon after. 
It was very refreshing to spend some time in the magnificent Canadian Rockies, but my favorite mountain photo of the trip was this black and white of the Howe Ridge from Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park Montana. 
After being in the mountains for days, it was nice to return to the prairie of Western Montana and be greeted with a beautiful prairie sunset near Judith Gap Montana.
